Private Screenings The GAMES Guide to Home Video Games By Phil Wiswell (GAMES magazine, December 1982) On any given night, it is conceivable that more TV sets are tuned to Pac-Man than to Dan Rather.

Scans of Gray Chang's handwritten notebook detailing the development process of the Atari 400/800 game Claim Jumper, published by Synapse Software. Kevin Savetz scanned this notebook, with permission from Gray, in December 2014. The hi-res, 600 DPI TIFF version expands to 21 GB. I could never get these TIFF files to render right in the Internet Archive in-browser viewer. But when I converted them to JPGs it worked, so you can view the notebook in browser here.
